How to Play a D Minor Triad on Bass Guitar

Learn how to play a D minor triad on the bass guitar from musician John Sutton in this online guitar lesson from Howcast.


The D-minor triad is made up of three notes, we have our D our root, our minor third F, and our fifth A. We're gonna start with D, which is our open D string. We're gonna reach back for our F, first fret on the E-string. And then our open A-string will be our fifth. Once we're ready to play our second octave we can play open D, third fret is F our lower third. Now A is the seventh fret on the D-string. And right next to it is D, seventh fret on the G-string. So here's the two octave D-minor triad. And that's the D-minor triad on electric bass.
